DC Comics Confirms Frank Miller and Rafael Grampa's Dark Knight: The Golden Child for December

A year ago, Bleeding Cool broke the news that legendary American comics creator Frank Miller and Brazilian star artist Rafael Grampa would be working on a new Batman comic book together called The Golden Child. Today, DC Comics media partner Entertainment Weekly had their own chance to announce the news. And that The Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child would be hitting in December.

The book is about Jonathan Kent, the son of Superman and Wonder Woman in the Dark Knight Universe, set three years after Dark Knight III: The Master Race. And, according to Miller, Kent has 'all of the wisdom and intelligence of the Kryptonian race would be an exciting new dimension. He really sort of developed as a little floating Buddha, someone who when he wasn't even a toddler yet was speaking in full sentences and had an understanding of events that surpassed anybody else's. He's the most magical member of the family.'

With his sister Lara Kent adopting a civilian identity, Carrie Kelly becoming Batwoman (seen below), it comes alongside the FOC for Superman: Year One Book Three with Miller and John Romita Jr and illustrated novel Cursed with Thomas Wheeler, due to become a 2020 Netflix series starring Katherine Langford in 2020.
